I would love if someone would comment on the suggested page content on
the wiki page that I have setup for developing these pages.
These pages are important for marketing the product for specific
purposes and tasks related to each target market.

I will, as soon as I can.

Again, instead of working in different directions and then having a
competition to see which is selected, lets get onto the wiki, where we
can collaborate to create some content which exceeds anyone's ability
when working alone.

Perfect. Let's make this a community effort.

P.S. David, I would suggest you ask if there is any objections before
swooping in and changing/unpublishing someone else's work. Especially
if this is based on one, albeit valued and respected, opinion.

I agree.

I have expressed my position very strongly, but the objective was not to have the pages unpublished immediately (also, my opinion should have been seconded by the entire SC, and it might not be shared by the majority).

Please agree on the following (without any order):

1. We are very happy to have a web site up and running.

2. Now, we need some time to look at contents with a more strategic approach and make the necessary changes.

3. Thinking needs time, so this step will take some time (and we all have 24 hours available, a family, a job, friends, and the right to relax every now and then).

4. We are not in a race: we have a stable software out, we have had quite a coverage on media, we have a roadmap, and we are happy.

5. Nothing that is on the web site today is really dangerous today (including the "why" pages).

6. Every single page on the web site might be improved.

7. We are in for the long run.

8. Shit happens, no one is perfect, we are all humans, and so on.

9. The most important feature of any community member is to work with the community, and not to show how good he is or how smart he his or how strong he his.

10. Respect others, and you will be respected.

11. You will always lose some time doing useless things, before they show they are useless.

12. Good work will never be lost (yes, I refer to "why" pages: they simply have to be reworded, as with small exceptions the contents are good but use the wrong language).

13. In a community, "I" does not exist as it has been replaced by "we", and yes WE have got a great media coverage even if I have been featured more than others (the hidden advantage of being a spokesperson).

14. WE all rock, but please do remember that either we have fun or we probably have something better to do.

I stop, and I'm done for the day.
